Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for documenting emergency drills, annual training, and children's records. The risk assessments for violations were provided.

We talked about making sure surfaces, such as door knobs/gates, are not handled on the way to the hand sink after each diaper change.

A vaccine is due for a pet by September 1, 2019.

Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 12:20 PM to 4:55 PM. Today, there were five to seven nonresidential children in care and two resident children under age eight years with the provider. The provider scheduled attendance to ensure she had sixteen points while alone. I viewed daily routines, equipment, activities, nap, snack, posted information, diapering procedures, pet record, emergency supplies and drill record, five records for children, three caregiver/resident records, caregiver training, indoor and outdoor areas. The provider has ensured supervision of the children during rest time. A variety of age appropriate toys and equipment were accessible for the children in care. We discussed options for using reminder systems so that needed records are obtained in a timely manner. Also, consistency with use of storage systems for records was recommended.

Let me know if you need any assistance. 540/430-9259

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-830-C
Description: Based on a review of emergency evacuation drills, and an interview with the provider, the provider failed to ensure that the documentation of all emergency drills conducted in 2019 was maintained as required. Evidence: The form with the monthly evacuation drills had information up to March 4, 2019. The provider indicated that monthly evacuations have been practiced and not written on this form. The provider said another form may have been started and it was not located for review.

Plan of Correction: The provider will make sure all emergency drills are documented at the time of the drill and the form is kept in a consistent location so that it can be easily used and reviewed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-100-A

Evidence: Child 2 enrolled on April 1, 2019 and there was only immunization information in the record.

Plan of Correction: The provider is contacting the parent this date and will obtain a copy of the physical examination report for child 2. A tracking system will be used for new children's records such as the check list and a calendar reminder for due dates.

The section for the second section for listing another emergency contact was left blank.

Plan of Correction: During pick-up, the provider will obtain the phone number for the first emergency contact listed and complete contact information for a second person. The provider will review all records at the time children enroll and make sure they contain all required information. The parents will be told in advance of the need to provide two emergency contacts.
